It appears that spam messages are being sent from an unsuspecting user.

I first realised that this friend of mine seemed to have sent a message which did not seem to make any sense. A quick check on her profile revealed that the similar message was sent to more than 5 people. It's either her account was compromised, or a malicious program is embedded in her computer that automatically sends spam messages to her friend.

Make sure you scan your computer regularly.....

The clip advertises the season finale of Dr. Who on Christmas Day.

Three years on.....

It was three years ago, as the flight I was in landed in Singapore and my name was paged through the plane's PA system. I was then met by an RBA ground staff and was told that I had to fly back to Brunei that same evening, though my next connecting flight to Brunei was not until the next day. I feared the worst, which was confirmed when I was told that my Mum had died earlier that evening. That news sapped my energy away and opened the tear floodgate. I remember talking to my brother and sister on the phone in the middle of the terminal; a conversation that interrupted by sobs and tear wiping. The two-hour flight seemed very long. My mind drifted away and I searched for clues and signs for her death, but could not remember anything out of the ordinary in the days before I left for my business trip.

The three years since she left us have not been the same. Life just felt incomplete. I always felt that there was this void somewhere. I could only wish she was here to celebrate our success and share our sorrow. Not a day passed by without me thinking about her.

Semoga roh Babu dicucuri rahmat Illahi. Amin...... Al-Fatihah......

Don't Drive and Text......

Warning: Very graphic, but worth watching.

and watch your speed too......

The following texts are from here:

Recent RAC Foundation research showed reaction times slowed by 35% when 17 to 24-year-olds drove while reading and writing text messages.

And its research last year showed that texting while driving impairs motorists more than being under the influence of drink or drugs.

It said nearly 50% of drivers aged between 18 and 24 texted while driving.

As well as reaction times being slower, it said texters often drifted out of lanes, had poorer steering control and the overall driving performance was poor.

The best medicine

Here's a clip from Pier Morgan's Life Stories, where he talked to Dannii Minogue about her sister's breast cancer.

I really felt for her and understood how she was feeling. I had my own cancer scare myself; in 2004, I was told I only had about a year to live if I didn't have mantle cell lymphoma, which I was diagnosed with, treated. That diagnosis affected everyone; my family at home, colleagues at work and friends. I was depressed , but determined to beat the disease. However, I realised I would not be able to beat it if I did not have the support from family and friends. I was glad that my family and friends were right behind me as I went through the ordeal of having various needles poking me at different parts of the body, of having to go through the tiny and restrictive CAT scanning tube; of having to decide that chemotheraphy would perhaps help to beat the disease and of having to wait as the doctors tried to confirm if I had in fact had that cancer. And guess who were the first people to hear that I had been given the all-clear? They were, of course, my family and friends.

Sometimes the best medicine that a patient can have are the support and love from family and friends.

Thank you all!
